About Composting News
Totally independent: Being published by an independently-owned small business, Composting News is not beholden to any organization. That means we are free to provide our readers with real, uncompromised news. Our readers appreciate that.
Since 1992, Composting News has been the only publication in the North American organics management market to report national retail and wholesale prices of compost and mulch products based on our market surveys.
Now featuring wholesale price listings
You asked for it and we delivered.
Since 1992, Composting News has surveyed the market and reported on regional retail prices for compost and related products. Recently, acting on the request of a number of compost marketers, Composting News has added wholesale prices to its market survey and reporting.
Composting News features the latest news and vital issues of concern to the producers, marketers and end-users of compost, mulch and other organic waste-based products.read more...
We believe we have a responsibility to support the market we cover.
That's why Composting News took the lead and created www.Way-2-Grow.com and the affiliated Compost Way-2-Grow Facebook page, which rapidly boomed to more
than 6,000 followers as of October 2013.
Compost: Way-2-Grow has a single purpose: Help to build market demand by promoting the benefits of professionally manufactured, all-natural compost and mulch products. It's the least we can do to support the thousands
of producers and the vendors who sell equipment to them.
